      pleasant, slightly fruity (fresh fruit from the orchard), sweetish with a little honey, grain notes, raisins soaked in water, and a tiny bit of alcohol ..., a little oak. Not intrusive but nice.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Easy start, a bit spicy with oak, a little tingly on the tongue, fruity with steamed apricots, sultanas, sweetish with a slight honey note.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Soft, fruity and sweet, apricots, raisins, a hint of honey and maybe also quince jelly, slightly tart oak notes, but not bitter, balanced and tasty on a long finish with a malty finish.

      * With a little water it is fruity in appearance and taste, sweetish, but here too with oak notes and a slight spiciness. Long and sweet with slightly tart oak notes ending ...

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice nose, pollen, flowers, honey and heather. Reminds me of a field full of heather in early morning dew.

    Sweet. Then come some bitteroranges, quite some bourbon influences, like toffee and vanilla. With water it gets a lot milder and accessible.

    Full and round (after adding some water though)

    Medium-long length. Burst of vanilla, toffee and citrus. A tad bitter and all in all it fades away slowly.

    Under €100,- is a steal!

    Don't know this was a sample.

    Nose and taste are both balanced. Lemon cake.
    • Nose
      Intense aromas with all that a bourbon barrel can give: vanilla, honey, caramel (the hard toffee), lots of fruit (bananas, melons, apples, pears, oranges / grape / citrus), creamy pudding or milk. Minty, spicy (ginger). 44 points
    • Taste
      Oily, fine viscosity. Very intense with lots of citrus, fresh oak, creamy-oily texture, palate-filling, full-bodied. Honey, some caramel, spicy (ginger). 44 points
    • Finish
      Long, slightly burning with lots of citrus, dry-sweet.
